Starred Review ALA Booklist
*Starred Review* Little Bear can't sleep. He's scared of the dark. Big Bear gets a lantern, then a bigger one, then one that lights the whole Bear Cave, but it doesn't help. Each time there's the same call (I don't like the dark .?20.?20.); each time Big Bear must leave his interesting book by the fire; Little Bear still can't sleep. Then Big Bear sees that all the lanterns in the world can't light up the dark outside; he takes Little Bear into the night, where the child falls asleep warm and safe in his father's arms. Winner of Britain's Smarties Grand Prize and the Kate Greenaway Medal, this is the second U.S. edition; the first was only sold through Discovery Toys. It's an elemental story, told with a beautiful simplicity and satisfying repetition. As Virginia Hamilton said in her interview with Booklist F 1 92, we all need a place of order by the fire in the cave. Firth's brightly lit watercolor and soft pencil illustrations, framed in the dark blue of the night, capture the cozy, physical affection of the story, the playfulness of Little Bear (who stands on his head while he's supposed to be trying to sleep), the shadowy mystery of the moonlit landscape, and the huge comforting presence of a parent who is always there when you call.
